Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick Review
I honestly can’t stop raving about (or wearing!) this lipstick, so I have to write it’s own dedicated review! It’s the Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick in Trophy Wife. (I wrote a shorter review about it as a part of my February Faves.) And chile if I knew it was gon be this good, I would have tried it out a LONG time ago.
First of all, the formula is incredible! It glides on smoothly and gives great color payoff. I often mix ombre the lip out with a liner, and it stays moussy long enough for me to blend and then dries down. The finish is matte and has incredible staying power, but it’s not drying at all. The normal complaint about matte lipstick is dryness. Definitely, my first thought when I started wearing them. Wearing the Colourpop matte lippies is a haze. A worthwhile one, but still. As my podcast co-host explains, it feels like water on your lips! And that’s a very big deal for a matte lipstick.
The color that I have, Trophy Wife is a great brown girl pink. It’s definitely more than a nude, so it’s not too brown, but it’s also not shockingly pink. It’s a color that reads pretty and feminine, making it appropriate for nearly every occasion. Which it needs to be for $20! (That’s the upper range for my lipstick, especially with Colourpop being $6.) It also randomly has a sweet, rosey scent, kind of like the YSL Lippies.
And I cant forget to talk about the packaging! It's iconic on Instagram. It comes in a small, cut out cardboard container with a plastic sleeve. Both the plastic and box have a top and bottom lip picture with the color swatched on. And when you put the lipstick in the box and close it, it looks like the lipstick is being held in the mouth.
I’m generally a frugal person, but when it comes to makeup, I look for quality first. And this here lipstick hits every mark! But I’d easily repurchase this shade or try out a different color. With her beauty line being this great, no wonder she’s one of Forbes top beauty influencers!
So Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick in Trophy Wife: highly recommend! Worth the $20. I haven’t tried another formula out there quite this amazing.
